Chopt Creative Salad Co. is planning a location for Ansley Mall in the Piedmont Heights neighborhood of Atlanta, according to a permit application filed with the City Thursday.
Colin McCabe, the co-founder of Chopt, confirmed the news in a prepared statement to What Now Atlanta Friday.
“We are very excited about opening at Ansley Mall and serving a health-conscious community that truly cares about the sourcing and quality of their food,” McCabe said.
“We look forward to introducing everyone to our salads, inspired by flavors from around the world and brought to life in partnership with local artisans and farmers.”
The build-your-own salad joint would replace Moe’s Southwest Grill, at 1544 Piedmont Avenue NE, according to the plans.
Moe’s is still open for business.
It’s unclear when the quick-service Mexican eatery would close its doors to make way for the salad restaurant.
An estimated $450,000 would be spent converting the Moe’s space into Chopt.
It will be the third Atlanta-area location for the chain.
Buckhead’s Tuxedo Festival shopping center will be home to the second.
